Description: Here is a picture of the rather ugly (but functional!) modification made to relocate the drive module so that a Prometheus PCI busboard could be installed in the top Zorro slot.  The drive module has a 56 pin connector; I couldn't find that, so I used a 60 pin cable.  I could not find a 60 pin male header, so I used a 64 pin header.  The male header had to be modified a little to not interfere with the drive module PCB.

I do not take good pictures but you can see the cable snaking from where the drive module used to be, and the Prometheus installed with Voodoo 3 card and (obscured) RTL8029 NIC.  It wasn't necessary to move the audio/video module.

Nice.
Here's a tip for something else you could do:
Have a look at the pcb with the mouse, joystick, serial & paralell connectors on it. It also has a SCSI terminator. Look closely, and you'll see that the SCSI terminator is on a separate piece of the PCB, and can be sawed off with a hacksaw.
This provides access to the DB-9/HDB-15 cutout in the back of the case, and you can mount the VGA-connector extension from the voodoo3 here.
